    I finally got one from my little BR, Eggie!!! Despite her name, she took several weeks longer than her sisters to start. I should have known that would be the case when I named her [​IMG]

    She's not exactly the brightest bulb on the block... For example she spends much of her time spinning in circles and squawking frantically because the other two girls have wandered around the corner and she can't figure out where they went.... So it wasn't surprising that despite spending weeks obsessively watching the other two girls lay in their nest boxes, she laid hers smack in the center of their run. Honestly I'm shocked it's not square [​IMG]

    But I'm so proud of her, my sweet little "special" chicken [​IMG]

    Oh, I have a "special" chicken, too. Her name is Robot and she rides the short bus.

    Glad she finally got the hang of things!
